Does anyone have to make sure their fat intake is fairly high? When I started paleo, I had a lot of problems with dizziness and vertigo, but salt definitely seemed to help. I got my salt intake up, and it went away for a while, but then it... (more)
I have been Paleo for about a year and a half. I have not had a serious cold during that time. Lazy week I had to travel by plane to attend a conference where I was waking up early and staying up late for five days. In that context I... (more)
Hi guys, I have had this problem for a year and a half now. I get a distended abdomen every time I eat or drink anything. That contents of the food/drink don't matter it is purely volume. I can say this as I have tried various elimination diets,... (more)
What about low stomach acid? Do a search on the web about it. There's a homemade test with asking soda you can try that may give you the answer or better yet talk to your doctor about it and possible he could test you.
So, I've seen if speculated that dizziness after drinking even small amounts of water kefir is from a die off/detox effect. But is this really true? Could it be something like histamine intolerance? The body reacting to a bunch of bacterial... (more)
Hello. It seems to be well known that high amounts of carbohydrates can cause drowsiness, though most sources relate dizziness and lightheadedness to low amounts of carbohydrates in the diet. However in my experience it seems that carbohydrates... (more)
Sounds like reactive hypoglycemia. For me at least, it's a lot worse with low-carb or with high glycemic carbs like bread or sweet potato/potato. The best carbohydrate sources for me have been basmati rice and fruits where the fructose exceeds the... (more)
Hi! I'm on day 19 of doing Whole 30 and I've noticed over the past week or so that I get dizzy very easily these days, just bending over to pick something up. Any ideas as to why this is happening or what I can do to stop it? Here are more... (more)
I have been eating a paleo diet for the last week, and today I really learned a lesson about eating properly and doing manual work. I am guessing I have been verging on a LC diet since I am basically a carb addict. This week has been all meats... (more)
Hello all, I am looking for a solution for this problem that I can't seem to shake! Let me start with my background: I am a 23 yo female, 105 lbs, 5'2. I've been attempting paleo for 2 and a half years, but due to a VERY high alcohol intake for... (more)
The only carbs you get are from an apple and a banana, try a potato or a sweet potato and see if that helps. There's no reason to be doing low carb at your weight.
I've noticed a link between using stevia (we're talking very small amounts here; less than a teaspoon) and bouts of dizziness within a few hours. In a way I'm relieved that since I figured out the link, I've stopped having it (it tasted like... (more)
Hi hackers, I've been LC for about a year but already added fruit back into my diet without any issues. Now I intended to do the same thing with starch (white potatoes, sweet potatoes don't agree with my stomach). Problem is, whenever I eat lots... (more)
Now call me a hypocondriac if you like, but heres what happened (I dont think I am, I was pretty darn relaxed about everything today). Cooked some nice new tastes for dinner (which BTW was yum), my using 1/4 teaspoon tumeric, and 2 pretty darn... (more)
Hi everyone, I was unsure whether to post this question as I have been feeling quite weird lately and I am not exactly sure what's going on. Some symptoms: -stomach feeling odd a few hours after eating: I feel like I need to contract my upper... (more)
I've been low carb Primal (paleo plus cream and cheese, and 50g or less of carbs) for a few weeks. Prior to that, I was mostly WAPF, with some sugar. I've been feeling dizzy and lightheaded after I eat. Usually within 5 minutes of eating. I'm... (more)
Could you get a blood glucose meter and check your fasting, then before a meal, right when you feel dizzy and then an hour and 2 after? Rule out blood sugar issues (even while vlc, it can happen) then we can it down.
Hey, I started Paleo almost 2 months ago and couple days after I started, I got brain fog, felt dizzy and my short-term memory was worse. It was quite bad for ~1.5-2 weeks and it seemed not to be the best, that times were (and actually still are a... (more)
It has been discovered that the probable cause of BPPV is dislodgement of small calcium carbonate crystals that float through the inner ear fluid and strike against sensitive nerve endings (the cupula) within the balance apparatus at the end of... (more)
Interesting theory. Vertigo-calcium. Obviously time to do a (N=1 )vit K2 experiment. Also I'd try to find a good neuromuscular therapist in your area. I'll help you find the most qualified one if you wish. Vertigo has a structural aspect as well.... (more)
After a bacon filled breakfast and munching on a batch of jerky where I got a bit overzealous with the salt yesterday, I certainly ate a bit more salt than was palatable, and I have the puffy face to show it this morning. In spite of several... (more)
I encourage you to check out David Brownsteins' salt your way to health'. I don't skimp on the salt at all. But I get it from unrefined salt. Even the table salt we eat in the SAD is processed, which removes many of the nutrients and minerals salt... (more)
Hi all, I'm new to paleo (my 5th day, after afew days adjusting to low carbs). Had a late breakfast, quite more than I'm used to, and after that I felt a minor headache beggining and a light dizziness. It passed an hour or so later. It's not the... (more)
When I stand up after sitting for a while I get real dizzy. I eat enough, and I'm gonna take vitamins soon to heal me from my vegan diet which caused tons of health problems. I read it's related to blood pressure. Is it a good or a bad thing? I... (more)
This happened yesterday to myself and my daughter (both paleo for months). We split a chicken burrito: beans, grilled chicken, a bit of sour cream, tomatoes. She ate the tortilla, I did not. This was from a neighborhood taqueria and we watched... (more)
Hi all, For the past couple of days I have been relatively low carb and paleo - eating liberal amounts of fat, a moderate amount of meat and some veggies (occasionally starches like parsnips and sweet potatoes). Anyway, my question is: has... (more)
I experienced the exact same thing while adapting to burning fat. If I worked out fasted, id near pass out. It takes a couple weeks depending on the individual to make the transition from high carb to using fat for fuel. Once complete however, as... (more)
I've suffered from this on and off while paleo. It's very distressing but mostly harmless. I've been to the doc who did a physical exam and declared I didn't have traditional vertigo but presribed some stemitil, which actually made it worse. I've... (more)
The three years before I 'went paleo' I experienced a few (5) episodes of dizziness caused by inner ear inflammation. Typically: one day really bad, next day a lot better, next day gone (or almost). Couldn't find a cause. Since going paleo, I... (more)
I've been doing a lazy version of Paleo for a few months now (cheating, eating dairy, legumes, potatoes and some corn) I decided to eliminate dairy to see if it was causing me any problems. I am very reliant on it, cheese is one of my most... (more)
Hello, I just started the paleo diet last week and I have been feeling much worse on the diet. To preface this I am not in good shape, and I lived a fairly sedentary carb filled lifestyle. I have been having greatly worsened symptoms of long... (more)
Normally I read this forms to get information for people I train more so then myself. I`m pretty sure this is the first question I am asking that really relates directly to me. Today I did a long workout, 52.03 min to be exact. Which is something... (more)
I realize it's an old question but I wanted to mention something. This may have nothing to do with your workouts or your diet. It kind of sounds like peripheral vertigo to me. I hope whatever it was worked itself out!
